It seems that Real Madrid’s patience has finally run out and they are now preparing to sell Welshman Gareth Bale. This has alerted the top Premier League clubs.
For the past year or so, Real Madrid’s welsh winger Gareth Bale has been linked with a return to English football. The former Tottenham Hotspur attacker’s Madrid career has been severely impeded by multiple recurring injuries.
These injuries have prevented him from realizing his full potential at the Santiago Bernabeu. It now seems as though Florentino Perez has given up on Bale and Zinedine Zidane is prepared to let go of the Welshman.

Premier League big guns looking to sign up Gareth Bale
The Mirror reports the interest of Premier League teams in Bale. League champions Chelsea are believed to be one of the contenders in the race for the £85million attacker. Bale’s former club Spurs are also looking to take advantage of his situation at Madrid and will look to tempt him with a dream return to his old club.
Additionally, Manchester United are also one of the big horses in the race for Bale. Jose Mourinho’s side have been linked with a move for Bale ever since his world-record transfer to the La Liga giants.
Bale’s contributions to Wales in 2016 were highly important. The forward helped his country reach the semi-finals of Euro 2016 losing to Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal in the semi’s.
In terms of the race to sign him, United are surely the front-runners. They have had multiple bids rejected for him in the past. Ex-managers David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal have also tried to bring the Welshman to Old Trafford, but failed. Mourinho will look to succeed where his predecessors failed and bring Bale to United.
As for Spurs, manager Mauricio Pochettino is a known admirer of the Welshman and if given a chance, he will do all in his power to bring the former Spurs star back.

It is no surprise if Real Madrid really do intend to sell Bale. The Welshman has failed to deliver on the world-record transfer fee that he was bought for. It has been a bad investment on the part of Florentino Perez and he will look to replace Bale with a player who is a much better fit for Madrid than the injury-prone attacker.
As for the interest in Bale, United and Spurs might be the only sides willing to take a gamble on the winger, Conte will be satisfied with the current squad that he has.
